A message from Doug Bergeron


To VeriFone employees:


I’m pleased to update you on the progress we’ve made since our April 10 announcement of our agreement to acquire Lipman Electronic Engineering Ltd. and extend VeriFone’s leadership in the electronic payment solutions industry. Last week, we filed a registration statement with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission containing a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus regarding the proposed acquisition. The definitive proxy statement/prospectus will, after the SEC review process is completed, be sent to the shareholders of VeriFone and Lipman seeking their approval of the proposed transaction.


Since the acquisition is still subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals, the two companies must continue to operate as independent and competitive businesses and may not coordinate business activities until the official closing of the acquisition.  Be assured that the necessary planning to accomplish a smooth post-acquisition integration is well under way. As soon as the acquisition is complete all of our employees, customers and partners will be apprised of how the enlarged VeriFone will be better positioned to meet their needs.


In the meantime, we appreciate your patience as the acquisition moves towards completion as anticipated during our fourth fiscal quarter.  Obviously, much work remains to be accomplished between now and the actual close, but many of you have already been tasked to help move this process forward smoothly and speedily.


All of these efforts are focused on ensuring a smooth integration of Lipman’s operations into VeriFone once the acquisition is completed. We are committed to providing customers of both companies with an even greater selection of high quality products and services. Over the past five years we’ve defined ourselves as a company with operational excellence, built by highly disciplined and experienced managers, and we fully expect this acquisition to continue that track record.


We are committed to building a world class global organization with best in class employees and the new VeriFone will provide many opportunities for employees as we



continue to drive increased value for our customers. Our plan calls for continuing all product lines and expanding distribution globally.


I hope you are all as excited by this as I am. I anticipate and appreciate the efforts that each of you will undertake to make this the most successful acquisition in our industry.
